Even before Hi Tops (a new sports bar soon to take over the old Lime spot in the Castro) has opened, it's already making national news. Well, it received a hefty shout-out on Chelsea Lately. That's almost like a headline, yes? Anyway, Ms. Handler and her revolving gaggle of comedians talked about the upcoming bar on Thursday night during their roundtable.

Among the bon mots tossed about regarding the Castro's first official sports bar, the panel wondered if Hi Tops will serve cuter food than a regular sports bar, like cucumber tea sandwiches; thought that gay guys should have to choose between Judy Garland or football (if you're asking us, the former all the way); and presumed lesbians will be in charge of all construction.


We asked Jesse Woodward, co-owner of Hi Tops, for his reaction to last night's E! Network mention. He replies, "There will definitely NOT be any cucumber sandwiches!"
